MRes Art is made up of three specialist pathways – theory and philosophy, moving image, and exhibition studies.

MRes Art uses research and writing to develop modes of questioning, speculative thinking and critical evaluation.

MRes Art: Moving Image investigates the intersections of film, video and disciplines including photography, painting, performance, poetry and literature.

The course actively encourages new approaches to critical discourse. It is designed to appeal to writers and artists and those interested in art research.

Taught in close association with LUX, MRes Art: Moving Image focuses on the theoretical and historical study of artists' moving image.

Closely tied to the British Artists' Film and Video Study Collection at Central Saint Martins, this pathway represents one of the leading centres for moving image scholarship.

It develops in-depth knowledge and exploration of one of the most visible and fast-growing contexts for arts practice.

Drawing on theories from the arts and humanities, MRes Art: Moving Image develops research in a dialogue with an expanding and exciting field of moving image practice.

The curriculum includes both physical and online aspects, including gallery visits, artist events, festivals, screenings and talks from visiting experts.

Through this, you will engage with the urgent debates arising from current research in dialogue with historical precedents and contemporary discourse.

Applications to this course have now closed.
